So I've done some Google searching for brushes for maps, and most of the symbols are fairly regionally oriented or too complex for my tastes.
The best I've found so far are these: http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=&section=&global=1&q=map#/d2amw36
I was wondering if anyone knows of something similar?
I am specifically looking for simple symbols for: Waves, Mountains, Hills, Trees, Towns/Cities.
I have found maps of the right style, but it has been hard to find the brushes for them.
I want to make something similar to the attached map, although not in that specific style. I want to make something that will look nice in pure black and white.
Btw, I am COMPLETELY artistically inept, and creating my own brushes does not end well.

Look up Ramah (Ramah-palmer), Giddie and Istarlome. All three are here and/or on dA and have excellent brushes for making maps like you posted.

I simply love the description on the DA site for these:


Have you ever wanted to make a FANTASY MAP and been too lazy to make your own vaguely mountain and treeish shaped blobs?!?!?! NOW YOU TOO CAN MAKE A FANTASY MAP! Includes VAGUELY TRIANGULAR SHAPED BLOBS MASQURADING AS MOUNTAINS! VAGUELY TRIANGULAR AND HAIRY SHAPES PRETENDING TO BE TREES! CIRCLES WITH A LINE ON THE BOTTOM PRETENDING TO BE A TREE! TERRIBLE-QUALITY HOUSE-ISH SHAPES! A DREADFUL LOOKING COMPASS ROSE! A FEW GRASS SHAPED BLOBS! AN ABSOLUTELY USELESS PILE OF ROCKS! AND MANY MORE SHAPES THAT YOU WILL PROBABLY NEVER USE BUT YOU'LL DOWNLOAD ANYWAY!!!!!
